Yap Divers Lifestyle

This is what it’s looking like between the dock and the reef this week. When it’s this good, the 25 minute boat rides could be longer and nobody would mind.

Yap Divers Boat Ride On Private Reef One of the nicest features of Yap is the relaxed diving pace on uncrowded dive sites with small boat groups. Today was no exception and perfect weather has these Yap days ringing in loud and clear for the guests.

This is the aft view as we rounded the southern tip of the island at full throttle. There was nobody around but us.

This is private reef diving with epic conditions.

Yap Island Cabbage Patch Dive Site, Micronesia Clear water greeted us at both dive sites. Today we dove Magic Kingdom and Cabbage Patch, a sloping corral bank packed with reef life, large fish as well as schools.

We rolled into huge blue water and drifted with a mild current as a 5 person dive group – that’s including the dive guide and blogger.

Today’s dive log included dogtooth tuna patrolling the edge of the blue, schools of barracuda, a giant blue belly, a spotted eagle ray, schools of snapper, several napoleon wrasse, several turtles and the whole array of reef fish. The wildlife report was as spectacular as the topside weather.

As we cruised the reef edge, a spotted eagle ray came out of the blue and swam right up to our group. At first it came so close, in my state of relaxedness I actually thought that it would be awesome to have a camera… then realized, I did – so here’s my picture of the eagle ray swimming past our dive group. The same went for a large school of curious barracuda.

There’s people in from Russia, the Netherlands and the U.S., all enjoying Yap’s attributes, on and off the reef. Here you enjoy the dive lifestyle with a comfortable vacation feel.

This is the latest status… some people may ask, when is a great time to be in Yap? the answer is, right now.

  1. Such great memories of diving Yap for a number of years. Those incredible days where the Lagoons are flat and glassy, the sun is shinning and you’re skimming over transparent waters, stingrays and reef sharks flitting out of the way of the boat. Glad to see it’s still uncluttered and clean. Long may it stay that way.

We stayed at the hotel and dove with Manta Ray divers in early December 2017. The hotel is very comfortable, well run and staffed with wonderful employees. During our visit my wife came down with an illness and the consideration and support from the hotel and dive staff could not have been better.read more

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good too.read more

The best place to stay in Yap. The resort is really nice and clean, the scuba diving is great, and the docked ship that houses the bar, restaurant, and movie screen is very cool. I really enjoyed my stay here.read more

The whole place centers around the scuba diving operation. Probably better to find somewhere else if you're not a diver. The dive operation was generally good, but a little too laid back - schedules weren't always clear, and sometimes would change without any notice. Sometimes it was hard to tell if this was really because of changing tides/weather or because of the island pace of life. Pizza is a surprisingly good option at the restaurant.read more
